THQ is still in the middle of a financial crisis. The publisher posted their quarterly financial numbers today and revealed that they lost $20 million in the three month period ending September 30. But, this is an improvement over the $92 million loss they suffered in the same quarter in 2011.
Because of their continued money woes, THQ has delayed a trio of titles that would have launched in early 2013. Company of Heroes 2 and Metro: Last Light, which were both scheduled to launch very early in the year, will now be released in March. South Park: The Stick of Truth will also miss its planned release date, moving from March 5 to “early fiscal 2014,” which means it’ll be released sometime between April 1, 2013 and June 30, 2013.
THQ President Jason Rubin had this to say about South Park’s delay: “I believe South Park’s market opportunity is significant. It is shaping up to be one of the most anticipated titles of calendar 2013. It is also an expansive title, encompassing multiple television seasons’ worth of content. We have been working closely with the co-creators of South Park, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, to make sure all of the game’s content performs to the high standards of the TV show, and this takes time. THQ is committed to giving gamers no less than the rich South Park game they have been waiting for and deserve.”
